I'm happy to report that Book 3 is in the works and is coming along quite nicely. It's a departure from Books 1 and 2, and I suspect my favorite early reader will have some reading to do when she leaves my house after her visit next week. The start of this novel is quite different from the first two, and I think folks are in for a surprise.
As I noted in a post earlier today, copies of the books have started floating around the web in PDF and other forms. I'm not bothered by that, but I do ask that folks who are reading let me know what they think about the first two books. I know that digital readers tend to be eBook hoarders (I'm guilty of that myself), but I have some hope that the sharing of PDF versions means that someone out there thinks the books are at least entertaining.
Feedback is how you, as readers, get a chance to influence where the third book in the Olivia Chronicles goes. I have some framework down, but the ending is completely up in the air. As Stephen King notes, it's up to the characters where this goes, but I'm open to suggestions and to ideas about who you want to see more of in Book 3.
I'm also planning on some tie-in short stories on characters from the series to submit to a couple of anthologies/websites.
But for now, back to Book 3 while there's a lull in the day job today.
